Class 5 Indian Day

This term Ancient India has been at the centre of our story curriculum. We have heard stories about different gods and heroes and learned about some aspects of Indian culture.

This week we celebrated an Indian Feast Day to mark the end of our studies. Children dressed up in Indian clothes and cooked Indian food to share with classmates and parents.

Several parents came in to help and offered the children a chance to try Indian Dancing, prepare flat breads and have henna designs drawn onto their hands.
 It was a fantastic day and offered the children a chance to taste another culture and experience the beautiful colours and vibrancy of India.
